Self-publishing is a complicated process. This boxed set of books de-mystifies the process.
The books will give a reader a good understanding on the right way to self-publish a book. The right way is to produce a quality book package to surround the content. In addition, the books provide valuable information on the marketing and business sides of being an author.
The books are written by a self-published author who shares his experiences — both good and bad — with writers interested in gaining an understanding of the complicated processes of self-publishing, book marketing and the business of being a published author.

I've read a lot of books on fiction writing and found most of them to be written using double-talk or gibberish and filled with made up terms. I decided to write a book for beginning fiction writers that would avoid the problems I mentioned above. It took me over three years to complete it, writing off and on.

Developing a method for writing a successful story -- a system that can be understood and utilized by another writer -- is an intimidating challenge, yet Hank Quense has managed it. There are other ways to approach story writing, but none likely are better or more understandable than Quense’s methodology. Creating Stories is highly recommended as a how-to guide for the novice writer and as a reminder of best practices for the experienced author.

Hank doesn’t purport to tell reader how to produce creative ideas, but offers guidance on how to turn those ideas into readable fiction.  

I recommend Creating Stories unreservedly to fiction writers everywhere.
